Room: D1-046

As applicants move through to become Alumni, this session will be looking at how universities and colleges are currently connecting up services and systems and what is being planned for the future.

Key issues today include vendor lock-in and interoperability, and how we revamp our IT procurement processes in an environment where “build vs buy” looks quaint and simplistic given the range of options we now have to weigh up.

Participants will be better equipped to identify and prioritise issues in their own institutions and propose solutions.
